The holidays are here and it’s the season for baking! This season, we’re addicted to Taylor Swift‘s unique Chai Tea Eggnog Cookie recipe.
You may remember a couple of years ago when Swift shared these cookies. She posted them on Instagram and, according to Seventeen, shared the recipe on Tumblr. The cookies are lightly iced and sprinkled with cinnamon. That combination gives them the most festive look!
Swift is a pretty talented baker but she didn’t come up with this recipe on her own. She actually adjusted the Giant Vanilla Sugar Cookie recipe from Joy the Baker. Head to Joy the Baker’s website to see the regular recipe but stop right before adding in the flour.
That’s where the personalization comes in. Before adding the flour, baking soda and salt, open a chai tea package and dump it in the batter. That’s what gives the cookies the delicious chai flavor. Then, follow the recipe from Joy the Baker until the cookies are done.
The “Look What You Made Me Do” singer couldn’t stop with the chai cookies there. She also added her own icing to the top — an eggnog icing! According to the Seventeen post, all you need to do is mix 1 cup of powdered sugar, 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1 tablespoon of eggnog. Once the cookies have cooled, top them with the icing.
It’ll be hard to keep your hands off these festive goodies once they’re done (trust us!). Bring these to your next Christmas party or Christmas dinner and you’ll be the hit of the night!
